Lieutenant Colonel Ponung Doming from the Corps of Engineers has been promoted to the rank of Colonel, becoming the first female officer from the state of Arunachal Pradesh to achieve this esteemed level of military rank. She will take over the command of a Border Roads Task Force (BRTF) in the strategically important sector of Leh.

 

Born and raised in Pasighat in the East Siang district of Arunachal Pradesh, she finished her education at the Daying Ering Higher Secondary School and the IGJ Government Higher Secondary School. For her further studies, she went to the Walchand College of Engineering in Maharashtra and majored in Civil Engineering. She cleared her Service Selection Board Exam in Allahabad and joined the Indian Army in 2008. Having served in the Indian Army for 16+ years, she has taken up many roles including being an integral part of India’s International UN Peacekeeping forces in Congo and is now the first Arunachal woman to be appointed as the Colonel.

 

Chowna Mein, Deputy Chief Minister of Arunachal Pradesh shared the news on Twitter and wrote, “Delighted to know that Lieutenant Colonel Ponung Doming from the Corps of Engineers has been promoted to the rank of Colonel, becoming the first female officer from the state of Arunachal Pradesh to achieve this esteemed level of military rank. As she takes over the command of a Border Roads Task Force (BRTF) in the strategically important sector of Leh, I am confident that she will continue to exhibit the same level of excellence and leadership that she has demonstrated throughout her career. Proud of Col Doming and wish her all the best in her future endeavors. Congratulations on a well-deserved promotion!”
